Ensuring American Leadership in Automated Vehicle Technologies: Automated Vehicles 4.0

Ensuring American Leadership in Automated Vehicle Technologies: Automated Vehicles 4.0, January 8, 2020, Las Vegas, NV.

Ensuring American Leadership in Automated Vehicle Technologies: Automated Vehicles 4.0 (AV 4.0) builds upon Preparing for the Future of Transportation: Automated Vehicles 3.0 (AV 3.0) by expanding the scope to 38 relevant United States Government (USG) components which have direct or tangential equities in safe development and integration of AV technologies. AV 4.0 is structured around three key areas:

  1. USG AV Principles
  2. Administration Efforts Supporting AV Technology Growth and Leadership
  3. USG Activities and Opportunities for Collaboration

AV 4.0 seeks to ensure a consistent USG approach to AV technologies, and to detail the authorities, research, and investments being made across the USG so that the United States can continue to lead AV technology research, development, and integration. U.S. DOT is seeking public comments on the AV 4.0 (Federal Register NoticeDOT-OST-2019-0179 - comment period closes on April 2, 2020).
